By default, the Key Ingredient Recipe Reader HD+ is a 10-inch Android tablet with a dedicated stand. It has a large enough battery life so that it will stay on for hours which can be helpful when cooking for slow-cook meals. This is a great advantage as opposed to your smartphones or other tablets that will automatically shut itself off after a few minutes of inactivity. But this cook-friendly device is not without heft, especially when talking about its price tag.
The Key Ingredient Recipe Reader HD+ Has a Display That Will Stay on for Hours
The high-end price of the Key Ingredient Recipe Reader HD+ is justifiable with its bevy of hardware and software offerings. It has a sharp and bright 2,043 x 1536 pixel resolution for its display, an 8-megapixel front camera, and a 13-megapixel rear snapper. Hence, you will not only be able to cook your food well, you can also take selfies to show the online social media world that you’re cooking at the moment, or take wonderfully sharp images (as far as built-in cameras for mobile devices will go) of your food creations.
For its processing power, it is made possible with an 8-core, 2.1GHz processor, along with 2GB of RAM. There is also 16GB of internal storage and it has an SD card slot for increasing said storage capacity. Also, there is a built-in FM radio, and it has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support.
The Recipe Reader HD+ comes with the company’s cookbook app right out of the bat. It is a recipe management software that has the feature of letting the device read instructions out loud. There is also the kitchen timer app which allows users to set times for several dishes. Other timers only offer a single timer which is hardly useful if you’re cooking multiple dishes at once.
The device will also connect users to the Key Ingredient website. In their webpage, they offer access to thousands, if not maybe even millions of recipes which are curated by the member of the Key Ingredient community. If you’d like to contribute to the community, it is very simple to do with the use of a Cookmark feature. This is a button wherein you will save a cookbook entry which you can edit and save any time. The best part about this is you don’t have to pay a single cent to use this feature.
Cooking enthusiasts who do not already own a quick access for a spare tablet intended solely for kitchen use, then the Key Ingredient Recipe Reader HD+ is for you. Even though it has quite the bit of heft in its price tag, you will be getting a device that is worth every penny you spend on it.
